  1. Straight from the horse's mouth....or maybe straight from the hippo's mouth?!? Mega excited for this one 👌
  2. This is still tasting great as a pour over. Delicious and citrusy. Anyone else got any left?
  3. 1. AmandaH 2. Bainbridge 3. Abs 4. MildredM  5. fluffles 6. Nick1881 7. EricC 8. Junglebert  9. Rakesh  10. Snakehips 11. 12. 13. (can't change font size???) Keep adding names if you want to join. Just a heads up, we'll be collecting payments before the weekend. I think we need to keep guest slots at £25 to make this viable but that price is definitely cheaper than buying direct from them (should be more than a 15% discount).
  4. I really like Origin coffee for consistent roasting. Always great coffees from them 👍
  5. Woohoo Steampunk. Those tins look great
  6. Yeh, I've been assured it's a great espresso, and it's definitely a winner as filter.
  7. Any more takers? This is definitely going to be one of the best LSOLs ever!
  8. It's possible that all previous subscribers weren't included in the renewal message due to this wonderful new forum. If you were in last quarter and want to renew but haven't received a message then feel free to pay in the usual way but send me and Daren a PM. Cheers
  9. You wouldn't necessarily but Origin have a reputation for very consistent roasting on the lighter side (of life he he). Certainly not one of the lightest roasts but delicious all the same.
  10. There's good news....and there's bad news. The good news is that I am preposterously excited about this month's roaster. Having just sampled the two choices we have, either one could easily go down as one of the best LSOLs ever! The bad news is....that this will be my last quarter running LSOL. It's been a great 2 years but it's time to move on. There will be a separate thread on my succession so please keep enquiries about taking over to a minimum in this thread. If you're interested in having a go at running LSOL keep your eyes open for the announcement. On to the coffee. There is a lot of hype around Kiss the Hippo and from the samples they've sent me it's easily justified. They roast exactly on point for my tastes and seem to have a great selection of coffees. Learn more here https://kissthehippo.com/blogs/pages/our-approach Let's be clear, these coffees are expensive so guest slots are going to be £25 for 500g delivered (definitely cheaper than buying direct). I will try to bring the price down before we finalise everything but I can't guarantee. What I do guarantee is that you'll be getting the sort of coffee I really want to serve up for LSOL. A stonking juicy banger of a coffee. The coffee will be dispatched w/c 17th June. Please add your forum name below if you would like to join: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Cheers! FBS [P.S. it's not too late to re-subscribe if you were thinking to drop out for this quarter]
  11. If it wasn't clear, we weren't having a traditional reveal this month as you could reveal yourself at any time by opening the little black envelope that came with your coffee. Just in case anyone lost there's or wants a more normal reveal...here is what we've been drinking... (Unfortunately it looks like it's no longer available but they have some other great coffees right now)
  12. Dan is officially a coffee hero! Congratulations.
  13. You are correct. @Darenis pulling his usual trick of doing absolutely naff all when we need him to. I'll pester him a bit more till he pulls his finger out.
  14. Normal service (big reveal) shall resume from now on...assuming you renew your subscription 😉 Keep an eye out for Daren's PM with details...
